If your car is like my SS, you should already have a boost control solenoid so you don't need to install another boost controller. You could install a manual boost controller but you have to be careful and not up the boost too much and blow up your engine.
well said, if you have an ebcs, the computer will control boost for you. Bad things happen if your not sure about what your doing, and judging by mod list the car should have been tuned when you got it. Sounds like a boost leak to me.
